After a comment on my bench about a bench off, I thought its a great idea. There all the threads about planes, braces, powertools of your dreams, etc. How about it on benches.
Pic of your bench or one you are going to buy or build and Why its best. The topic should provide some info for the woodworking getting ready to build or buy as well as give us a place to gloat.
Plus even though I'm not building another bench, I still love looking at others.
I haven't been on in a while but I just seen a pm when i got on today. It appears the tag "smackdown" is being added to the benches shown here, so you can click here and see em all.
I just went to Tandy leather and picked up a piece of belly(?) scrap for ten bucks. I originally bought it for making strops, but I had some left over. So far the ten dollars has gone to two strops, one leather vise jaw, one to a friend for a strop, and I still have a little left over. Plus the smaller scraps work well for a final smoothing of turnings on the lathe. The Tandy is about a mile from my house, so it might not be worth it to you Mauricio. But if you do go to Tandy, you'll be in my neck of the woods, so let me know.
Good luck, Mauricio! Take plenty of pics. (Nothing like some late night woodworking!)
Scott, I want the same thing! I've done a few logos, but nothing I'm really i love with. Also thought about coming up with a name--perhaps something latin or greek related. Getting a branding iron. Now we're talking.
